Psychonauts is the greatest platformer of all time, probably my favorite game of all time. Its a ridiculous travesty that nobody bought it.

This was probably my favorite Xbox game. Everyone should give it a go and then demand a sequel.

I've wanted to play this game for a long time, so i got really exited when i found out it was free on gametap. Only one problem, most games on gametap don't run on 64 bit vista. Does anybody know if there is some way around this?

I'm sorry, but this just pisses me right the hell off! I paid good money for Psychonauts when it came out! This seems unfair!

I got to a point in the game where it seemed like I absolutely had to have a cobweb duster to advance, but didn't feel like scrounging around for hundreds of arrow heads. Maybe I should see if there was a way around that.

I never liked how long stages lasted either, but it's still a good game. Especially for free.

I'd still pay for it on Steam or Xbox Originals, just because it deserves it.

It's been free for about a year now.

It's sad, It keeps crashing right before the Milk Man conspiracy level. :(

I really want to finish playing it, it's pure genius.

one of the greatest games no one bought and now gametap is letting you play it for free? If your computer is able to run it and you dont go play it you are an IDIOT!

You can always buy it really cheap on PS2 or Xbox.

Yeah, the only problem is trying to find it. Probably just going to have end up buying it on steam. Stupid Vista.

I got it off free on gametap a while ago, but I had some problems with it, it would regularly crash on the loading screens, so I gave up.

I did, however, buy it a few weeks ago on the PS2. Yet to give it ago though.
